The drills and tips to hit the uphill approach shot unveiled
The uphill lie in golf happens when you hit the ball onto the upslope. In this case, you have to target straight up to the slope to reach your aim. The uphill lie in golf is a challenging situation in which you do not have any literal chance to control your ball’s trajectory. Whichever club you select and whichever swing or setup you choose, the ball will flu higher than usual.
When you practice at the driving range, alternate your golf shots with a driver and a 7- iron. Go backward and forward for minimum half bucket, and try to swing both the clubs with equal tempo and feel. Practice it for seven days and it will penetrate in your habits. The slower swing with the driver will help you strike the golf ball with consistency. In fact, you may start driving your ball with a measured swing since you are able to make an impact with the club on its sweet spot with more stability.
With highly advanced equipment of today, you just have to make slight efforts to hit the fairway.
The trees further than middle of fairway are 268 yards away from the tee. If you hit the shot with the driver, you will risk your chances of reaching them. However, you can hit with a hybrid or a 3-wood to be safe.
There is a reason that you are able to hit the 3-wood in a better way than the driver- the 3- wood consists of more loft. You can switch to a 11-driver or a 12- driver. An extra amount of loft will let you have better backspin, which means you will have lesser sidespin. As a result, you will hit the driver straighter.
If you hit the 4- iron off your tee, it may not be good if you are left with 4-iron into greens. You can rather strike with the driver and take the risk with 7-iron from rough, in place of facing a 200-yard method.
In case you have doubt about the safest area of landing, you can look around for 150- yard post. Usually, it is positioned in a modest spot. Now, deduct 150 from your hole yardage in order to determine the distance you should cover with your drive.
